Don’t you sometimes wish you could build a man? I know I do. He’d be the best man ever. I would take the best qualities from all the men I’ve ever dated to make a super man. It would be great…right?!?!?
He would be tall, dark and handsome….
- In perfect shape, meaning 6 or 8 pack
- Health conscious
- Loves to workout
- Nice dresser
- Easy on the eyes
- Nice hairline
- Perfect teeth
- Great smile
- Great personality
- Sense of humor
- Good character
- Not easily angered
- Man of God…of course
Done….I think….at least for now.
My next step would be to take this list and submit it to God. I have to include God in this. I need His blessing. Only he could fulfill this very specific request.
My desire is to build a woman. A woman after My heart. A woman’s heart that is so hidden in Me that a man would need to seek Me first to find you.
Simply put, God said, “I got you…leave this to Me.” He knows that when I put my hands in the mix I’d likely make a mess of things. Possibly put together a patchwork doll.
God not only knows what we need but what we desire. When we try to put the puzzle pieces together ourselves we end up with a complete mess. God can fit pieces together far greater than we can. In unexpected, amazing ways.
“…my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9 NLT
Another way to put it, trust God and quit trying to be God.
If only we stay in our lane we would find things working out as they should. Sometimes it seems counter-intuitive but then again…when I open my hand to release MY desires to God, God in turn is able to deposit HIS desires in what is now an open hand…and heart.
Doesn’t God have a way of making some really good points? If I can be totally honest with you, I’ve gotten everything on MY list before and it still turned out to be a hot mess. Somehow I managed to leave some things off my list…go figure. I think I’ll leave the building of a man to Him. And in the meantime, I’ll continue to allow God to build me into the woman He created me to be.
Be Bold, Be You, Be Blessed!
